Charged With A Crime? It Doesn’t Mean You’re Guilty.

TRAFFIC CRIMES

Denver Traffic Attorney – Speeding, Careless Driving And Other Offenses

Traffic crimes in Colorado are often responsible for loss of employment or the ability to provide a residence for loved ones. Many of our clients rely on their driver’s license for getting to a job or for employment that involves driving. So, protection of this privilege should be a top priority when you are faced with a possible Colorado point suspension of your license. What may begin as a simple traffic infraction could cost you your income and ability to meet important financial obligations.

Colorado Point License Suspensions/Point Limits

Throughout Colorado, licensed adult drivers over the age of 21 lose their license if they acquire 12 points within any 12 consecutive months, or 18 points within any 24 consecutive months. Once a driver accumulates the 12 or 18 points, he or she may be permitted a red/restricted license to operate a motor vehicle in our state. A minor driver, who is between ages 18 and 21, loses their driving privilege if they acquire nine points within any 12 consecutive months, 12 points within any 24 months, or 14 points for offenses occurring after reaching the age of 18 years. A minor driver who is under 18 years can safely acquire only five points within any 12 months, or a total of six points before reaching the age of 18. The Colorado Department of Revenue — Division of Motor Vehicles assesses points based on the type of conviction. If your license is important to your future, it is important to hire a lawyer who understands Colorado traffic crimes. Some of the common traffic-related violations we fight include:
